How good it feels to laugh
Wednesday, November 20, 2013
On Monday evening, my children reminded me what it felt like to laugh. I had to made a dessert for my husband to take to work on Tuesday. First, my 11 year old son made brownies, all by himself. After we had made them, I realized that they wouldn't be enough, so I decided to make a cake too. After I got the cake going, I decided to cut the brownies, which I was glad, because as I cut them the center came with the knife. I decided to keep the brownies home and let my children nibble on them.
Back to the cake, after I got the cake in the oven, I let my kids(13 & 11), lick the beaters, which turned into a food fight.-as hitting each other with the batter covered beaters and spatula. Along with getting cake batter everywhere, we got out the ice cream and whipped cream to have with the brownies. While the whipped cream was out(redi-whip), it somehow ended up being all over everyone's faces.
My husband was at a meeting, which was ok, since we had whipped cream and cake batter all over the kitchen and ourselves. Usually I would be upset at having to clean up such a mess but after seeing the joy in my children's faces, I just laughed about it and we all clean up the kitchen.
At about 7pm, I was reading with my kids, itched my head and realized that I had dried cake batter and whipped cream in my hair. I spent the rest of the night picking it out of my hair.
With all the chaos in my life lately, I had forgotten what it was like to let go and laugh. It felt so good not to care and just have fun.
